Illustration Friday


Ok, I'm late. Its not Friday,it is early Monday morning, but sometimes life takes over.

I can also be forgiven for plying a little artistic license in 'under the sea' to morph to 'under the water' as these fish are Koi carp, not a saltwater fish.

A final confession, the painting was done in 1985! Older than dirt, but it still hanges in my home, having crossed an ocean since its conception. Aha! I HAVE got some sea in there!

Thank you. I remember doing this piece so clearly. And I used it as part of a portfolio for entry to graphic design college. Yes, I was accepted, but once again, life got in the way and I couldn't do so at that time.
